Emily Johnson

Care Coordinator

Emily Johnson

Emily comes to CHC after conducting research at Stanford’s School of Medicine for three years. While she still has a soft spot for research and evidence-based care, Emily joined CHC to work directly with children and families (instead of just studying people) and to be a part of CHC’s mission–believing in the potential and resilience of every child and teen.
